The details of the crime scene are no coincidence. The body — a promising starlet — has been battered, bloodied and then discarded between two of Manhattan’s oldest graveyards. One look and Detective Jude Crosby recognizes the tableau: a re-creation of Jack the Ripper’s gruesome work. But he also sees something beyond the actions of a mere copycat. Something more dangerous...and unexplainable. As the city seethes with suspicion, Jude calls on Whitney Tremont, a member of the country’s preeminent paranormal investigating team, to put the speculation to rest. Yet when Whitney and Jude delve deeper, what they discover is more shocking than either could have predicted, and twice as sinister....

Good book kept you guessing right up to the end on who the killer was. Not many books have done that for me lately. Well worth the credit.
Pretty typical Heather Graham. If you like her other Krewe of Hunters books, you'll like this one. The ending came out of nowhere, and not in the good way. She leads you in one direction and then totally blindsides you. I'm not opposed to being surprised like that but I wanted more background- more explanation to why the killer did what they did. Luke Daniels is great, you can hear the difference between all the characters; male, female, young, old, southern, irish, new york and so on. My only complaint is that he's not quite consistent between books. Jackson, Jake and Will don't sound the same from one Krewe book to another.
Man this one really starts out strong and with promise; then it loses it's way, going from a strong premise of a new wicked genius serial killer to a low budget ghost buster meets the hot quiet hero from a romance novel, then it completely goes off the rails when the ending is so predictable and cheap it made me want to take the author back to the beginning and point at her story line then force her to tie up the loose ends! What starts as a great mystery thriller about catching a copy cat serial killer the ending could have been so much more, I was really sleepy when it finished. One thing though, this Narrator was great and I'll add him to my list voices I prefer to hear.
They are Rene Auberjonois, Marc Vietor, now Luke Daniels
The book was okay....A little on the dull side, but okay. Not a favorite of mine, but I love the narrator in a few other books so I gave this one a shot.
